The fallout from the ill-fated Fyre Festival continues with another class action lawsuit against the Bahamas Music Fest which promised a luxury experience with top notch food, accommodations and famous people!
The newest lawsuit comes via personal injury attorney John Girardi, who is representing attendees Chelsea Chinery, Shannon McAuliffe and Desiree Flores accusing organizers of breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation and fraud suit, stating that the defendants hoodwinked people into attending the event by paying more than 400 social media influencers and celebrities to promote it.
Not only did the event feature beach images of pretty models, they also secured the social services of Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski to create the perception that event would be filled with celebs. With that, the lawsuit also alleges that the social media campaign violated FTC regulations, as "Social media 'influencers' made no attempt to disclose to consumers that they were being compensated for promoting the Fyre Festival….As Plaintiffs began to grasp the dire nature of the situation, upon witnessing the complete lack of infrastructure necessary to host such an event, a panic enveloped the crowd…Plaintiffs were stuck on the island, with no way off."
